Default 3400 1/4 mile

This upcoming spring/summer i plan on taking my car to the strip once i get my tune. Just kind of wondering what you guys think my car will run. I will more than likely be on all season tires since i won't be taking it very serious on a daily driven 3.4 but i have a Wizaired CAI from ZZP, L67 coil packs, cat back exhaust, and the Overkill tune. I weigh about 230-240 and i think Monte's are like 3500 pounds. I was thinking like 16's 17's if i'm lucky, so tell me what you think!

I'd say your guess of 16-17 is probably right.

I have roughly 120-125,000 miles on mine. I thought about doing more mods for performance wise but i don't think it's best to do it on a daily driver nonetheless a car that doesn't have much potential on a small budget. But after the tune, more exterior and handling mods then i'll be done...... Hopefully

Hi Brendon, I agree with your logic...I've learned the most important things to be it top condition are having good brakes, tires, shocks/susp & then just keep it as clean and detailed as time permits. ( Good condition hoses/belts/fluids changed & filter's) Owning a car is expensive: some just more then others.

Your day will come when you can get a performance ride `if that is your desire...Education/College is the best investment you can make @ present...It sure will help you make better $'s...What are you studying ? Good Luck ...

Yeah back in high school i took a auto mechanic class so i should be able to keep up on the basics pretty well. And I'm majoring in athletic training right now, then after words I'll go on to either med school for sports med, physical therapy school, or chiropractic school. I'm sure when the time comes I'll have made my decision.

Mid 16's probably. You could always take out some seats and the spare tire to squeeze out a very slightly better time.

Yeah i'll probably take my back seats out but i have 2 12" subs in my trunk so not sure if i can get wheel out or not. I might just unhook the subs and take those out with the wheel.
